New things and improvements in Sense 4.0:

- Landscape mode now also in home screen (with optimized buttons etc)

- No on-screen buttons (as on Nexus) but will adopt the 3 buttons (prev. 4)

- 3D Task manager

- Better lockscreen, with better integrated notifications, to-do-lists, notes, contacts etc.

- Updated Email client with threaded messages and improved layout (over all better email)

  • Smart Sync technology which syncs your email based on your usage habits

- Better Browser, with Read later and Watch later functions. Introducing a new Reader feature.

  • Reader:feature in browser strips away ads and other useless web clutter
  • Read/Watch Later: feature in browser saves content in a widget which can be accessed at a later time (even offline)

- Guest mode, lets your friends only test some basic stuff (no phone, data, and special apps)

- Better Camera - when it detects a face, it takes 5 pics and chooses the best one. (I guess a new version of Amaze cam?)
  • ImageSense: auto focus is 0.2sec, shutter time of 0.7sec
  • Dual Shutter Camera (video record and take photo at the same time!)
- DropBox integrated (25 GB for 2 years for free!)

- Beats Audio will be universal, meaning allowed in any 3rd part apps (Spotify, YouTube, Pandora, VPlayer, etc.)

- SoundHound seems to be integrated in the music app! (see pic attached in 1st post)

- SkyDrive integration (Microsofts cloud storage 25 GB free)

- Scrollable wallpapers are back. Changing wallpaper.

- Carousel and 3D effects are gone (to speed things up)

- HTC Speak - digital personal assistant. Similar to iPhone´s Siri (roumor)

- New sounds (notifications etc)


Overall, loosing some of the bloated feel, and now being more grown up with improved speed etc.

Looks interesting!

The DropBox feature sounds great, the additions to the Browser seem like a nice touch and improved battery consumption with the Email client is welcome.

I just wonder will the Sensation get it as an official update? I'm hoping so since the HTC Ville's specs don't sound too far off the Sensation's.

Yeah, sound really good. but, if not any official upgrade for us Sensation users, it will most likely be ported.

but, since we will be upgraded to android 4.0.3 soon (official) it sounds logic that we will get the Sense 4.0 too... right?

as always, as with bootloader locked - as soon as user start complaining, they cannot exclude us also...
if they are upgrading us to android 4.0.3 they will have to upgrade sense also!

yeah he might be right.. 3.6 might go official at start, but then upgraded to 4.0 to give us that extra WOW-feeling.
the first WOW is android 4.0.3 then after a month or so, they release the 4.0. (or at least after the release of HTC Ville...)

One would think... but logic could also dictate that they would give us a version of ICS to placate us and keep 4.0 for the newer devices to entice people to buy a new phone. LOL

Gotta hate those people with all the $$$!

THIS is what they usually do. the Evo4G didn't get an update when it could easily of gotten one long ago just as an example...

if i had my bet id say they only made this 3.6 ICS to make Sense mesh with ICS on current devices and then from there 4.0 is for new hotness

yeah, i guess. but as with the locked bootloader, they caved in.
if my HD2(love yah ;)) was locked, i would of threw it away quite soon, but custom roms gave it an extra year. (locked loader was a way for them to not keep your phone up to date, and therefore buy a new one sooner)

hope we get the same result here (as transformer prime)

If this be the case, I'm sure the XDA community will find a way to rip it out. They will port it just like all the other releases.

Im most excited about universal Beats support, guest mode (which I hope is customizable), and landscape view (which would have been even more useful when I had a G2).

For all the people worrying about an official 4.0 update, I wonder where you could go to find some sort of online community who likes modifying phones and such? :rolleyes:

    i hope not youre addressing that to me, cos i havent done nothing. when they told me you had a leak, i went and checked youre twitter cos theats interesting news. but i did not wrote a single word to you.

    be more specified to whom youre talking to, or even write him/her an PM or something.

    also, what did you expect? when you announce something like that on a public site (like Twitter) and "brag" about having it.. of course many ppl are going to check whats what (and maybe even share it) - is all part of the game. dont play that game if you cant handle it...


    Oh dear... He's not referring straight to you. More a case of in general to the person encouraging twitter spam. That's childish, and a sure-fire way to NOT get it.

    A pm won't help, because it was referring to anyone participating in twitter nonsense... So posting it here makes sense.

    RE twitter it's hardly bragging. He has something, people blew their chance of getting near it through behaving in a silly way. And even then, if there are watermarks on the ROM, or if it's not for distribution, then you'll not get it. Enjoy any pictures, or progress on getting it on the sensation, and stop trying to justify people's jealous behaviour...
